Jorge A. Caballero
Clinical Instructor, Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine
Bio Currently Medical Director at Amino, a consumer healthcare company that aims to revolutionize the way people find doctors for themselves and their loved ones.
Professor of Genetics
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My lab is developing innovative gene and stem cell therapies for genetic diseases, with a focus on gene therapy and regenerative medicine.
We have created novel methods for inserting therapeutic genes into the chromosomes at specific places by using homologous recombination and recombinase enzymes.
We are working on 3 forms of muscular dystrophy.
We created induced pluripotent stem cells from patient fibroblasts, added therapeutic genes, differentiated, and engrafted the cells.
Assistant Professor of Bioengineering and, by courtesy, of Mechanical Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly Interests The Camarillo Lab is currently instrumenting Stanford athletes with inertial sensors to investigate the mechanism of concussion. Additionally, the lab is researching cell mechanics for regenerative medicine. We are developing a quantitative, noninvasive and early measure of viability in order to allow clinicians to transfer the single most viable embryo. Other research area is in medical instrumentation as it pertains to robotic catheterization for curing cardiac arrhythmia.
Clinical Assistant Professor, Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences - Stanford Center for Sleep Sciences and Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Positive Airway Pressure devices for central sleep apnea
Clinical Assistant Professor, Otolaryngology (Head and Neck Surgery)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Pre-operative evaluation and selection of potential candidates for OSA Surgery.
Innovative approaches for management of OSA.
Mark A. Cappelli
Professor of Mechanical Engineering
Bio Professor Cappelli is the author of over 100 papers in these areas. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board of Diamond Films and Technology. He is also secretary of the Electric Propulsion Technical Committee of the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics.
Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our research focuses on the identification of host genes that play critical roles in the pathogenesis of infectious agents including viruses. We use haploid genetic screens in human cells as an efficient approach to perform loss-of-function studies. Besides obtaining fundamental insights on how viruses hijack cellular processes and on host defense mechanisms, it may also facilitate the development of new therapeutic strategies.
